The communication message is displayed on an LCD screen that can be viewed by the communicator and the communication partner. Who can receive a Zam Communicator?

Health care and disability professionals can promote the availability of these devices. What does it look like? The Zam Communicator is approximately 9 inches wide and 11 inches high. A docking station for charging the Zam Communicator is included, with an indicator light to let the user know when the device is fully charged.

My Zam Communicator will not charge. What do I do? Unfortunately, some of the Zam Communicators occasionally may not charge or the AC adapter or “charger” may not work. If this happens, review “Recharging Instructions,” ensure the charger is firmly connected to the Zam Communicator, and push the Reset Button. These steps may help the Communicator take a charge.
